LA is getting the MLB All-Star game

It marks just the second time ever the game will be played at Dodger Stadium.

The video clip showed different Dodgers All-Stars from the past like Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax while highlighting present honorees like Clayton Kershaw and Corey Seager. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, injured third baseman Justin Turner and closer Kenley Jansen joined them under a hot sun.

"This is more than steel, concrete, dirt and grass".

Besides 1980, the only other time the game has been held in Los Angeles was 1959 at the Coliseum.

"We are excited about the Major League Baseball announcement today revealing that the Los Angeles Dodgers will host the 2020 All Star Game", Cedillo said in a statement.

Get your sunscreen and ball caps ready - the 2020 MLB All-Star game is heading to Dodger Stadium in Los Angels, CA. That was a 4-2 win by the National League in the 1980 game.

Before the game goes to Dodger Stadium, this year's exhibition will take place at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. on July 17 followed by Cleveland in 2019. With the rich history of Los Angeles, it's surprising how few games have been played at Chavez Ravine.

It will be interesting to see what sort of stadium improvements or changes roll out over the next few years to prepare for the All-Star game.
